Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Just wanted to provide an update for the ones that gave up on GameCentre. It seems that the issue has been solved! I am able to watch all out of market games now.
Even though Rogers keeps saying that nothing has changed from the previous site to the new upgrade, it did change, in the way that I am unable to watch in market games. I realize that the whole purpose of GameCentre LIve is to watch out of market games and that is fine, but this new update "enforced" this. WHich is fine and I am not complaining.
I just got a band new phone today and went from Bell to Rogers almost entirely because of Gamecenter Live. I do not own a TV so watching on my iPhone or desktop are the ways I watch hockey. So I just sat down and logged in, excited to watch my Habs (albeit if they are out of playoffs) and I get told that it is blacked out? I live in Gatineau, QC, which is across from Ottawa. Why are Habs games blacked out? Please tell me there is a workaround for this. Even watching in French is fine. But if not, I am very disappointed already.
As mentioned many times before. Gamecentre Live is for out of region games . The whole province of Quebec is in the Habs region. If your TV provider has Sportsnet's app as part of the watchtveverywhere program.
If you don't. You can use a VPN program to watch the game on Gamecentre Live.
Hi, thank you for your post @melissabougie and sorry for the late reply. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to have this issue return.
• Is it the same case as before, where it stopped working after an update?
• Is it only working on your Android device and not the PC?
• Do you have the option to test it from another PC?
• What have you tried so far?
- Yes the same case as before, where it stopped after the update. Same issue, cannot watch ANYTHING now. This moment, I am clicking all the games available and everything is blacked out.
- Yes, same as before. It is only working on my android phone.
- Yes, but not luck with the other PC.
- Nothing else to try. Tried it with several other browsers, cleared cache all of that. But obviously this is not a browser issue.
This issue was rectified maybe couple of weeks ago? But not its back!

Your patience is greatly appreciated.
I am traveling in Hawaii for 3 weeks. On the GameCentre website it says that you can watch games while you travel. I thought Yay!
but today I tried to watch the Oilers Flames game in Calgary and was told by the NHL website that
"This game is subject to blackout restrictions in your area."
hmm this makes no sense as no one in Hawaii is going to go to that game in Calgary!
Is this some bug in the system or do they really black out games in Hawaii...?
What else could be wrong?
You missed one heck of a game... wait till morning to watch.... I think you should check location services on your device... could it think you were still in your home area? I'm not sure but when I run out of all options... I open KODI and find the game I want to watch.. 99.9 % it works great.... the kodi app I think was called prosports.
Two days ago, on Thurs Oct 20, I went to the Rogers Game Center site on my PC to watch the Leafs game. It said the game was unavailable, due to being blacked out. I live in NB, so I am not in the Leafs market. Also, the game was not being televised nationally. (It was only being shown in-market on TSN4.)
So from what I understand, I should have been able to see the game. I never had any problem with Thurs night games last year. Has something changed? Am I going to be blacked out from all Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri Leafs games this year?
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. The leafs game should have been available to you since you are in NB. We can have a ticket created for you to fix the issue, please send us a private message at @CommunityHelps when you are online. Our private messaging system is explained in this blog.
I am a Shaw Internet subscriber in Kelowna, BC, and also subscribe to Rogers NHL GameCentre Live. I haven't had problems until relatively recently (last 2 weeks?). I was blacked out of a HNIC late game from Edmonton, even though it's a national broadcast and was also listed as a FREE game.
I contacted the GCL chat line, and was told that my IP address was reported as being in Calgary and that it was my internet provider's problem. I contacted Shaw and they concurred with GCL as to the actual IP address, but that that in itself wouldn't geolocate me as living in Calgary. It's simply the address that my modem is identified with externally.
Question 1: How does GCL geolocate subscribers? I can't change my IP address.
Question 2: Why is this even an issue for a national game?
Question 3: What does FREE game mean?
